From Russia with Love: Dobromyslova seals Ally Pally return

Anastasia Dobromyslova sealed her return to Alexandra Palace as she came through the Ladies’ Rest of the World Qualifier in Düsseldorf. 

Dobromyslova will make her second appearance at Ally Pally after featuring at the 2009 edition of the tournament, where she bowed out in the preliminary round at the hands of Remco van Eijden.
‘From Russia with Love’ came through a field of 82 women in Düsseldorf, defeating Vanessa Nelz, Anna Degal, Baerbel Holst and Poland’s Karolina Podgorska to reach the semi-finals.
The three-time Ladies’ World Champion faced her toughest test of the day in the last four in Japan’s Mikuru Suzuki but dealt with her well, coming out a 5-2 winner to reach the final.
Dobromyslova breezed to victory in a one-sided final against Silvia Dolores Keller, whitewashing the German thrower 6-0 to book her place at the 2019 William Hill World Darts Championship.
It was an impressive day also for the fairly unknown German Silvia Dolores Keller who reached the final with wins over Petra Kugelmeier, Giulia Bernadelli, Liane Hebbel, Irina Armstrong, Kim Huybretchs’ wife Dana Verhaegan and Neuza Beatriz da Cunha Araujo, but she fell at the final hurdle to a fantastic player in Russia’s Dobromyslova.
After a good turnout in Düsseldorf, another group of women will battle it out next Sunday in Milton Keynes at the Ladies’ UK and Ireland World Championship Qualifier. The likes of Lisa Ashton, Deta Hedman, Lorraine Winstanley and Fallon Sherrock will be in action.
